Yesterday, I celebrated my birthday. My husband presented a beautiful three-layer yellow cake (filled with fresh strawberries!) two nights early this year, so I could celebrate with family that was leaving Saturday morning. I won't tell you exactly how old I am, but--after all of the Thanksgiving feasting, pies and birthday cake--I will tell you that the day called for a delicious and light birthday dinner.
Not everyone likes breakfast foods for dinner, but I do. In fact, I love eating breakfast foods at dinnertime.
Healthy dinner in a pinch... That pretty much sums up my every weeknight. Last night was no different.
We're in the middle of two weekends away from home. Last weekend was Harris's first birthday celebration, a cowboy cookout weekend at Lloyd's familiy's ranch. I have to admit, no seafood was served. Harris double-fisted his favorite food - ribs - then dove face first into his mini cake.
New take on an old favorite... Try using hummus instead of mayonnaise in your tuna sandwich.
Jennifer and I were in Houston for the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) this past weekend. If you know any dietitians, you know we love food.

As a nutrition science translator, blogger, media critic, and new mom, I believe the most important nutrition advice I can give is to only take nutrition advice from sound sources. I earned my Master of Science Degree in Nutrition Communication from Tufts University in Boston, MA and my undergraduate degree in Communication Studies from Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. I am credentialed as a Registered Dietitian (RD) and belong to the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), as well as the Food and Culinary Professionals practice group of the AND.
As a dietitian for the National Fisheries Institute, I work to help families enjoy seafood-rich diets. Fish and shellfish not only boost our brain and heart health, they can be fast, simple, and delicious. My favorite people to relish a good meal with are my husband, Lloyd, and infant son, Harris.

I am passionate about good food, cooking, and helping others prepare healthy and tasty meals. Fish—packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein—is a staple of those meals. In my role as a registered dietitian with the National Fisheries Institute, I track and translate the latest news on the nutritional benefits of seafood. My background includes degrees in Human Nutrition and Communications. I work with food and beverage groups, as well as individuals, teach nutrition to culinary students and create wellness programs for employers. I also often provide commentary for news media. When I am not cooking a healthy meal or running after my two young children, you can find me running, hiking or practicing yoga.
